    Sold the CETME, buying a.....

    .....Good, solid .308 bolt. I don;t shoot the CETME and the round works great at any distance I can hold on a pop can lid out of a bolat action rifle. I'm shopping around for a Rem 700 or maybe a Savage 116 or even a 110. I'll scope it and that'll be a good addition to the safe.


    And, as usual, I need a bigger safe!

    Probably a good move. A close shooting acquaintance has a CETME. Bit of a clunk and seems too "tender" to be depended on. I too admire bolt-actions.

    I had thought about a CETME but I had an AR-15 I did not like (would not hit the side of a barn from inside) that I took to a gun show looking to trade for a CETME. I ran into a good trade for an M1-A instead. After watching a young lady at a High Power match and what she could do with a Rem 700 at 500 yards that would be a good choice.

    I had both a 700 BDL and a 110. Both good rifles. Nicer finish on the 700. Both shot about the same at 200 yards. I also had a G3/91. No comparison really, apples and oranges. I wasn't really into long range shooting so they both got sold and the G3 was sold to finance an StG.58 build.

    Take a look at a Weatherby Vanguard, one of the best bolt rifles made today!!

    Don't overlook the new Ruger American! My buddy bought one last year in .243 it is as accurate as my older Model 700 BDL but has a better trigger! BTW, they are well under $400!
